Japanese Proverbs: Wit and Wisdom Book, 410 g
Japanese Proverbs: Wit and Wisdom is filled with universal truths— some that will be immediately familiar, and others that are expressed in a uniquely Japanese way. This book will delight students of Japanese culture and language, providing insights to the Japanese worldview and a boost toward fluency in the language. All the proverbs are presented in Japanese script and Romanised form, with direct English translations.
Witty illustrations illuminate the proverbs and expressions, and equivalent proverbs in English are given to demonstrate how, in so many ways, human nature is the same the world over. This selection of ageless wisdom is a gentle guide to the enduring values and traditions which drive Japan today every bit as much as in the past.
